07:24 AM ET 06.28 | The injury bug has hit both Duke and North Carolina this week. Duke guard Rodney Hood suffered an injury to his right Achilles tendon on Wednesday, though a team spokesman said on Thursday that the severity of the injury is unclear. Matt Plizga, a Duke basketball team spokesman, said the Blue Devils' team doctors haven't had a chance to evaluate Hood. He suffered his injury in Colorado Springs, Colo., where he had been participating in tryouts for the USA Basketball World University Games team. ... P.J. Hairston, the North Carolina junior, suffered a back injury earlier this week that ended his participation in the tryout. A UNC basketball team spokesman said on Thursday that team doctors haven't had a chance to evaluate Hairston.

I wish the Blue Devils could play the Wolverines in every game of the regular season, and in every game of the NCAA tournament considering how much success we've had in that match up, and how little success Michigan has had.

Generally the players at Michigan are as good as in any given div 1 program. Its just that the Wolverine program in particular has a problem with making the leap to bride from bridesmaid. Only Wolverines fans can enjoy ALMOST making it time and time again. Duke fans need to actually win to feel successful. So again I say...

Michigan. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Isn't PJ Hairston already out for "Excessive Thuggery" anyway? I swear I read somewhere that he was nothing more than a common criminal and was wasting a scholarship at UNC.

No, he isn't. Thugs usually commit murders like Aaron H. Are you intelligent enough to read? UNC doesn't believe they're wasting a scholarship on PJ.
